The Authenticity Of The Exorcism Against The Possessing Spirit

I spend a lot of time researching the origins of the incantations and exorcisms that we are given in the Simon Necronomicon. Now, there are a lot of people who think that Simon invented most of the Book, a large part of the incantations being a figment of his imagination. I must admit that I too have had some doubt about some parts of the text. The more I study, however, the more evidence I discover that the parts I had doubts about are not made up by Simon, but are also based on ancient incantations just as the parts that are written in the ancient tongue. Personally I had my doubts about some of the incantations that are completely written in English. I have learned the origins of some of these, others yet remain a mystery…. I have also learned that various incantations and exorcisms of the Necronomicon are somewhat modified. They have either been parts of larger incantations, or they are written in a slightly different manner. I do believe, however, that all incantations are in some way based on original ancient incantations.

There has been one incantation in particular of which I have been trying to establish its origins. That is The Exorcism Against The Possessing Spirit. Many times I have questioned the authenticity of this interestingly written exorcism, and often I have wondered if this exorcism was invented by Simon. I have found evidence, however, that shows us that this exorcism is actually based on a series of tablets that are charms against the evil spirits. Against possessive spirits in particular.

English translations of these tablets can be found in the book The Sacred Books and Early Literature of the East: Babylonia and Assyria written by Charles Francis Horne, on page 71 to 73. Unfortunately this book doesn’t give us the charms in the ancient tongue, but it does prove to us the authenticity of the exorcism against the possessive spirit and validates its use.

Let us now take a look at the four parts of text which make up the exorcism against the possessive spirit and the ancient charms they originate from.

  • “The wicked God
  • The wicked Demon
  • The Demon of the Desert
  • The Demon of the Mountain
  • The Demon of the Sea
  • The Demon of the Marsh
  • The wicked Genius
  • The Enormous Larvae
  • The wicked Winds
  • The Demon that seizeth the body
  • The Demon that rendeth the body
  • SPIRIT OF THE SKY, REMEMBER!
  • SPIRIT OF THE EARTH, REMEMBER!”

This part of the exorcism has its origins in the charm that is found on Tablet 1, which is as follows:

  • “The noxious God
  •  The noxious Spirit of the Neck
  • The Neck-Spirit of the Desert
  • The Neck-Spirit of the Mountains
  • The Neck-Spirit of the Sea
  • The Neck-Spirit of the Morass
  • The noxious Cherub of the City
  • The noxious Wind which seizes the body and the health of the body
  • Spirit of Heaven, Remember!
  • Spirit of Earth, Remember!”

Now let us take a look at the second part of our exorcism.

  • “The Demon that seizeth man
  • The Demon that seizeth man
  • The GIGIM who worketh Evil
  • The Spawn of the wicked Demon
  • SPIRIT OF THE SKY, REMEMBER!
  • SPIRIT OF THE EARTH, REMEMBER!”

This part is, not surprisingly, based on the second charm, Tablet 2, which reads:

  • “The burning Spirit of the Neck which seizes the man
  • The burning Spirit of the Neck which seizes the man
  • The Spirit of the Neck which works Evil
  • The creation of an Evil Spirit
  • Spirit of Heaven, Remember!
  • Spirit of Earth, Remember!

On to the third part of the exorcism against the possessing spirit.

  • “He who forges images
  • He who casts spells
  • The Evil Angel
  • The Evil Eye
  • The Evil Mouth
  • The Evil Tongue
  • The Evil Lip
  • The Most Perfect Sorcery
  • SPIRIT OF THE SKY, REMEMBER!
  • SPIRIT OF THE EARTH, REMEMBER!”

This part originates from the charm found on Tablet 5, which is as follows:

  • “He who makes an image which injures the man
  • An Evil Face
  • An Evil Eye
  • An Evil Mouth
  • An Evil Tongue
  • Evil Lips
  • An Evil Poison
  • Spirit of Heaven, Remember!
  • Spirit of Earth, Remember!”

We have come to the final part that makes up our exorcism.

  • “NINNKIGAL, Spouse of NINNAZU
  • May she cause him to turn his face toward the Place where she is!
  • May the wicked Demons depart!
  • May they seize one another!
  • May they feed on one another’s bones!
  • SPIRIT OF THE SKY, REMEMBER!
  • SPIRIT OF THE EARTH, REMEMBER!”

This last part originates from the charm found on Tablet 8, which reads:

  • “May Nin-Kigal, the wife of Nin-a’su, turn her face toward another place!
  • May the noxious Spirit go forth and seize another!
  • May the propitious Cherub and the propitious Genie settle upon his body!
  • Spirit of Heaven, Remember!
  • Spirit of Earth, Remember!”

The original tablets these charms were found on number ten in total, and they seem to form one long incantation. The way they are divided, however, suggests that they might also have been used individually. It is obvious that these charms are protective incantations against the possessive spirit, and that they are most definitely the source of the exorcism against the possessing spirit that we are given in the Simon Necronomicon.

  1. Thanks for bringing this information to light. I Have come to a similar conclusion. After have researched the Simon Necronomicon, I must admit that I have seen how over 80% of the information corresponds directly to the rites of Ancient Mesopotamia.

  2. Indeed it does! This goes to show that those that deny its authenticity have not done proper research. It may cost a lot of time and effort, but if one does the work one will discover the authenticity of the material we are given in the Simon Necronomicon, and one will come to learn the ancient sources they correspond with.
